There’s So Much Money In Music- Wendy Shays Reveals
Wendy Shay has revealed in a fresh interview that music is financially rewarding as she wouldn’t have relatively achieved anything if she had stuck to her profession as a nurse.
The Rufftown Records signee revealed this in a new interview conducted on Accra FM by 3FM. The ‘Bedroom Commando’ hitmaker, a nurse by profession who later underwent midwifery training before pursuing a music career, claimed that she is earning a lot of money from music and that her desire to accomplish greater things motivates her to do more.
During the interview, she was heard saying, “There is so much money in music…Because of the money I am making now just even from my streams alone, I couldn’t have made it.”
“And I want to do big things…The things I want to do in my life, build a hospital, orphanages one day, in order for me to do it, I have to do music,” she added.
Additionally, Wendy Shay observed that most of their fans find it hard to go to their digital platforms to stream their songs because of how expensive data has become in Ghana.
The awarding winning artist whose real name is Wendy Asiamah Addo said fans here can’t fully appreciate their works because they can’t afford data bundles served to them by the various telecommunication networks, as compared to other African countries, especially in East Africa- where she observed, data is cheap.
She attributed this to expensive data and asked musicians to come together to do something about this- probably having a united front to petition the government on this phenomenon.
“I now understand that data in Ghana is really expensive. After doing some investigation, I discovered that East African nations had lower data costs. You can see how many streams they have by visiting their YouTube channel and other streaming websites.
“I believe that as celebrities, we should determine the best course of action to take.” Even outsiders have expressed concern about this issue frequently, so we must utilize our influence to address it. Because of this, there are now fewer music streams available for Ghanaian singers than in other African nations”, she said this in a separate interview on Accra FM.
